The Robert Hill Bible

Although not my direct ancestor, my 4th great granduncle Robert Hill (1790-1867) owned a Bible similar to his mother, my 5th great-grandmother Anne Hill (1762-1835; Baldwin line). The location of this Bible is not known; these copies were sent to me by Susan Hill Husij, 3410 E. Dry Creek Rd., Phoenix, AZ 85044 (2007). Images of the Bible are shown below with a transcription following. Information in brackets [ ] has been added for clarification.
